This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Stayed there a few days, the team is very nice, the Hostel clean, and perfectly located in the center of Istanbul. The personnel gave us some good plans to visit istanbul and the rest of Turkey. Very Nice !
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
If you would like to get out from the tourist district and see what current istanbul is like, then it is a perfect location. Very close to the main street and there were a lot of cheap restaurants nearby.
Thick soft towel, hot nice shower (we found other hostels in Turkey had really low "dripping like" water pressure of the shower; however, this hostel's shower felt more like what we are used to in Canada).
The room (and the common area) was very cold so we basically had to hug the oil heater... Also I was bit surprised that we had to do the dishes after breakfast. (because the price of this hostel was significantly higher than what we payed for others in Turkey and they did not ask as to do the dishes.)
The staff was friendly but not that knowledgeable. My impression was that he was still new to the business, so it may improve as he gains more experiences.
